REVEREND Tuikilakila Waqairatu was a respectable man.

This was the view of Fiji Muslim League president Hafiz Khan following the death of the Methodist Church of Fiji president.

"I know him personally and he was a very respectable man. He was obviously trying to move things in a positive way in the Methodist Church of Fiji," Mr Khan said.

"And he respected all institutions and various religious bodies."

Mr Khan said he was shocked at the news of Mr Waqairatu's death, adding Fiji had lost a great leader.

The Arya Pratinidhi Sabha of Fiji echoed Mr Khan's sentiments saying Mr Waqairatu had begun a healing process with other church groups.

"The Sabha had always hoped that the Methodist Church one day would be back in the fold of the Interfaith Fiji and saw a rare possibility in Reverend Waqairatu's presidency," media relations officer Kamlesh Ayra said.

"He held a lot of promise for the Methodist Church and had begun a healing process with other church groups."
